STAGE FOLK and Some times OTHERS 


"It tbe popularity of the 'coon •on*' wan- 
ing?" was tta* question recently put to mott 
of the prominent publishers of popular music 
In the metropolis. This question has been 
naked many timet daring tbe pait tew yeare. 
and only recently could It be answered, for 
up to the present no publisher could appar- 
ently give a decided opinion. The general 
opinion now la that tbe immense popularity 
It bas enjoyed so long la somewhat on the 
wane. There Is far less call for tbe "rough- 
bouse" coon song that formerly brought so 
much personal success to tbe singer, and so 
much money to the publisher and composer. 

Tbe so-called "neat" coon song Is always 
singable and saleable, though it may not be 
the great success of some of Its predecessors 
of a noisier description. It Is thought by one 
prominent publisher that "rag-time" music 
will always have a strong appeal to the 
masses, for they are always more emotional 
than the classes. "Rag-time" Is an Irregular 
rhythm where the musical accent la not at the 
uaual accented place In the measure, and the 
unexpectedness of this accent Jars tbe hear- 
ing, though pleasantly. It the rhythm of a 
song glides along In tbe regular way, there, 
is no aural suspense In awaiting tbe pleasant 
break which Is the chief characteristic of 
"rag-time," What class of emotions may 
thus be touched Is not to be determined here, 
but somewhere among tbem Is the appeal of 
"ragtime," together with Its ear-tlckllng 

But, nowadays, to be a success in tbe 
greatest sense of the word, this sort of a song 
bas got to hare «n original catchlneaa not 
found In a predecessor, and these are few, 
comparatively. Imitations are seldom good 
sellers. It would seem that nearly every 
song situation' had been worked to It s limit, 
and that there was nothing new to write, but, 
now and then, an unknown composer, either 
by keen Judgment or by inspiration^ lights 
upon some peculiar twist of melody, or an 
original treatment of the coon theme, — then 
dollars and renown are bis. 

The fact remains, bowever, tbat at present 
there are not so many big hits In this style 
of song as formerly, and that they have to 
be better written and less suggestive In moral 
sentiment, In order to be real successes. 

It Is the absolutely ridiculous situation of 
tbe latest big success, "Bill Simmons," that 
strikes one's humorous side, and It's a good, 
clean appeal, quite unlike that of some of the 
"rough-house" sort. "Bill Simmons" Ib the 
kind of s coon song that will always go, espe- 
cially when the main humorous Idea has good 
musical treatment, as it has in this case. 
There aro several more good things of. this 
color' that aro making glory and money, but 
this Is conceded to be tbe best seller of its 
class at present. 

And thereby bongs a little tale. Tbe au- 
thor, whose name Just now escaped me, took 
bis composition Into tbe busy, bussing hive 
where the Witmarks dispense quantities of 
popular music. To Julius, of the Witmarks, 
be said: 
"I've got s little thing here by way of a 

coon song " 

"Needn't explain further," exclaimed Wit- 
mark, .with a deprecatory wave of his hsnd, 
"no more coon songs for us. They've bad 
their day, and we've all of that sort on our 
Hat tbat we can handle, and a lot more In 
manuscript that we can never use." 

"But," persisted the author, "this Is really 
something that will go, I'm sure. Just let 
me play it for you," 

"No use," replied Wltmark, with finality 
In his voice, "we can't possibly use another 
coon song, so you'll only be wasting my time 
and your own." 

"All the same, Julius, Just listen to a 
strain or two," coaxed the author. 

"Very well, then," reluctantly acceded the 
publisher, "but It's only because of our 
friendly relations that I'll spare the time, 
but I tell you beforehand, it's no use — we 
don't want another coon song," 

Seating himself at tbe piano, tbe composer 
begun "Bill Simmons," and before he was 
half through the chorus, the Wltmark ear 
was caught captive to the sentiment and 
lilt of the song. 

"Never mind I" the publisher exclaimed, 
"you needn't finish — the song Is great! I 
know Just exactly where to place It," and, 
turning to tbe telephone on bis desk, he called 
up Maude Raymond. And the cleverest in 
her line of work has been singing it ever 
since, to more encores tban her strength will 
permit of taking. 

Comic song writers get out your pencils 
and music paper and Bet to work! One of 
the - foremost publishers, who keeps a dis- 
criminating finger on the pulse of the public, 
lias given bis opinion that the comic song la 
going to have a big day coming right away. 

The very popular Indian song keeps up a 
big Interest, but scores of Imitations of the 
early ones are tiring tbe public to some slight 

Tbe love ballad will always bo steadily 
popular, with a "bit" of big proportions 
from time to time. 

The Irish song Is about to have nnotber 
Inning, so they say. This sort, like the Irish- 
man, Is never completely downed, but bobs 
Its head up at Intervals. 

There Is always a call for a good march 
long. The distinctly marked, regular accents 
are Just so many little percussion shocks, 
stirring and stimulating tbe emotions, and 
awakening a feeling of natural patriotism 
tbat lies to almose every breast. People enjoy 
that emotion almost *s much as they do the 
appeal to their tense of humor In song; — the 
latter, however, proving to be the greatest, 

for, after all, the most of us want to laugh 
when, we go to a place of amusement. 

All opinions being massed, brings out the 
fact that nothing In a popular way bas beld 
sach a long, steady, continuous and powerful 
sway as the "coon song," and that tbe call 
for It Is not at present so loud aa it was. An 
absolutely new and original treatment of It, 
at the same time retaining Its chief charac- 
teristic, might, however, revive the old time 
popularity for a while. As the title to one of 
Arnold Daly's playt goes, "Ton Never Can 

There la an incident connected with nearly 
every one of tbe titles of tbe thousands of 
songs published. The ways and means of 
naming compositions are many. Nearly all 
popular writers carry note books In their In- 
side pockets, which they treasure as If they 
were gold— for they reslly, In maoy cases,

Tbe above Is s good likeness of Kittle 
O'Brien, "tbe Shamrock," of the well-known 
vaudeville team of Daly and O'Brien, "tangle- 
foot" dancer*. They will close a season of 
thirty-six weeks with the Parisian Belles Co., 
May 18, and return to vaudeville. Next sea- 
son they contemplate going to Europe, and 
also to visit Miss O'Brien's home town (Dub- 
lin, Ireland), while there. They will pro- 
duce a new novelty dancing act. In one, next 
season, and carry tbelr own scenery. 

result In veritable gold. In tbem they gather 
and record all tbat strikes them aa being 
oatcby speeches of their friends, for future . 
use as a title. Comic situations, accidents 
and ordinary actions of every-day life are 
full of titles for songs. Tbe commonplace Is 
Idealized In a title, and on the front page of 
a piece of music is mode to stand out from 
Its ordlaary surroundings. It Is true that a 
catchy title bas saved many a song from 
oblivion. The title attracts the eye, and the 
beholder is thereby moved further to examine 
the composition, which otherwise might not 
have secured his attention. 

A handsome title page Is also aa Important 
factor In attracting tbe buying public. 

"Teasing," which la one of Albert Von 
Titer's big successes, got Its title and central 
Idea one day whlU l-s T-.-ns riding In a Broad- 
way car with his wife. "I was only teasing 
you," was the little lafij's explanation to 
some objection tbe young composer made to 
a previous remark. Out came his precious 
note book, In wblch be added to the many 
Ideas set down therein, tbe catch-line of bis 
song bit. 


"I'm Sorry" with which Louise Dresser 
made a big Impression, is a song tbat be- 
gan with it's title, and not tbe song ides. 
From Inquiry it appears that about as many 
songs are written to accommodate titles, as 
those wblch are nameless till finished. 

Jack Not-worth, the clever actor, who writes 
maoy of the lyrics for Albert Von Tllzer's 
songs, said one day : 

"What do you .think of 'I'm Sorry,' for a 

"It's a funny title," replied the composer, 
"and I can't see much In It. And It you 
can, I'd 'be sorry' too." 

The rhythm and accent of Von Tllzer's last 
remark struck both author and composer at 
the same time, and the last line of the chorus 
of thti song hit has the same mualcal rhythm 
"If I only knew, that you were sorry too." 

Prom trivial turns of conversation come

Thn show Is being handled in a masterly 
manner, "up snd down early" every day. 
Kuril department Is completely filled with 
good help The show has entirely abandoned 

tbe giving of street parades, and, despite 
the prediction of many wise-acres, the Idea 
Is a success The crowds on tbe lot are as 
large as ever, and the many novel free ex- 
hibitions offered give at much satisfaction as 
a street parade. The elimination of tbls 
traditional circus (feature savct this show a 
great deal of money, involves less labor, pur- 
chasing of wardrobe, harness snd trappings, 
less horses and other sccessorles required 
for a pageant There Is another way In 
which money Is saved by the elimination of 
the parade— that is, the saving of exorbitant 
license and petty • 'shake-downs," caused by 
runaways. .... . 

The Sun Show is the first (nine) car train 
show to attempt this innovation, and It would 
be well for other legitimate shows of this 
standard and character to copy the idea, as 
it will save money and time, and Increase 
tbe dally receipts. • > , 

A few words regarding some of the big acts 
In the "main" show will not be amiss: The 
Five Graceful Grohs, In a diversity of equlll- 
brlstlc specialties and a mammoth wire net, 
are scoring heavily at each performance. Tbe 
La Pasque Troupe, In tbelr novel tremplln 
triple bar act, Is a salient feature. This act 
Is under the direction of Walter L. Llnnlcy. 
The Juggling Boyles (direction of Francis) J. 
Boyle), present a spectacular exhibit of mar- 
velous club Juggling and hoop rolling. Tho 
act Is going big ana Is one of the bits of the 
show. Wnlter Ashborne's comedy and mili- 
tary elephants are cresting a furore, with 
their new "stunts." This act Is away from 
the beaten path, and possesses all the ele- 
ments of originality. All of the other acts

their London season on April 22, at the Wal- 
dorf Theatre, with "The Sunken Bell." The 
house was crowded, the audience Including

appeared in "Jeanne d'Arc," which waa 
hailed by the London critics as a better vehi- 
cle for the display of acting ability. Miss 
Marlowe, as the Maid of Orleans, won tbe 
audience completely, ana the writers all 
spoke well of her work.

Word comes from -Berltii that Beerbobiu 
Tree Is the personification of tranquility and 
good humor amid tin) storm of criticism 
which has raged about htm in the German 
capital. Interviewed, 'Mr. Tree said : "I do 
not know what reports have reached 'London. 
Wc have received enthusiastic applause front 
the Berlin public. Socially -we have been over- 
whelmed with kindness. We have -been felcd 
by our comrades, we have been honored by 
His Majesty, the Kaiser, and (he Imperial 
family, and wc have received much generous 
appreciation from the press. I understand 
that -a suction ot the critics do not approve 
of- out English methods -Of producing Shakes- 
peare, but - that 'la' not unnatural. We have 
never fulfllled'a more pleasant engagement, 
and wc have agreed to return to Berlin next 
year, extending our tour to Hanover. Frank- 
fort, Haihhitrg. Vienna and other cities. We 
have had, perhaps, more ■than our share of 
the preoccupations which fall to tho lot of 
the strahger hi a strange land, but we are 
ending the -week In tho lightest of spirits, 
Und (do thoroughly grateful -for the uridine 
orpei'lence the itvwk has vouchsafed u*. We 
take with us hack' to England that which. 
nffcr nil. Is dearest to the player's heart— 
the consciousness: that wchave delighted -and 
entertained a series of audiences which have 
grown In size and enthusiasm from night to 
night. For the llrst time, wc arc told. Berlin 
theatre audiences have broken awny from Ibe 
tradition which regards audible acclaim as 
disorderly, and have given vent to their feel- 
ings In applause which could not have been 
heartier. That has consoled us for all ihe 
critics have said. When we are compelled 
to -answer Insistent curtain calls so oflen 
that modesty forbids another appearance, 
when -audiences stand cheering and -blind 
clapping' for teu or (if teen minutes atter the 
play has ended, when, as to-night. 1 cannot 
Una seats for my dearest friends — I lliluk 
no special mental effort Is required to enable 
us in be 'fiiily philosophical. Tlie Berlin 
critics. 1 believe, are In a class by themselves. 
With, them it Is criticism o daf ranee. They 
go at It relentlessly. Pailerewskl and Ktibc- 
Ilk have faced the'r batteries, and they have 
never conic back. Much that tins been snhl 
about our work has been. I believe, altered 
from a somewhat mistaken understanding 
or our mission. We did not. conin to tench 
the. .Germans anything about their Shakes- 
peare, hut simply to Illustrate our Own con- 
ception Of Olir Shnkeshenre. The general 
obJMlou has been' that our Interpreta- 
tions lack emotion. Perhaps oilr critic 
frJends have forgotten that tho Englishman 
Is sometimes surging with the deepest emo- 
tions 'when- he Is showing it least, and Hint 
heroics may he delivered without shivering 
the rnfters. I dislike to dwell on the worries 
which have pursued us with such relcnl- 
lessness— 1 mean our failure to get posses- 
sion of Ihe theatre at the promised time, 
with consequent handicaps upon our staging 
arrangements, and 'our experiences with 
a miner refractory lot of German stage 
hands. Our feelings about these matter* 
are exclusively those Of disappointment. 
not of • anger — disappointment that they 
h«ve prevented ub from giving as t'om- 
pTeie and 'perfect performances as we should 
hsve lilted lo give, and nil we might have 
given uhder happier circumstances. We hftve 
not sltotrclher starved of the hospitality for 
which the Germans are Jiistlv famed. Indeed. 
Hie fact that we hnvc not experienced more 
of' It 'Una been due In a large measure to our 
Inability to accept nil the Invitations which 
have been tendered us." ■■■■:. 

During tbe middle of the week I received 
word that Mr. Tree And his players were win- 
ning the golden opinion of -Berlin audiences 
In face of nu unbroken series or exasperating 
and discouraging experiences. They are bnv- 
l*g to flgnt for every morsel of KUfocsB they 
obtain. The critics teemed leagued against

Bongs My Mother Used to Sing," which is 
one of the great song hits of the year, ll 
going bigger than ever, and every day In- 
creased demands for It are received by ths 
Wltmark House. John Baxter, who la ■ 
favorite singer of illustrated songs, writes 
from Youngstown, O. : " "Those Bongs My 
Mother Used to Sing' Is the biggest success 
I have had In weeks." The big mlnlstrsls, 
given by tbe Wabash Athletic Association, 
at Wabash, Ind., offered a programme of va- 
ried and Interesting character recently. Ths 
opening overture, given by the entire com- 
pany, was a rousing number, and the con- 
cluding solo, "The Rose and the Violet," 
received a full quota of applause and appre- 
ciation. The Wltmark House has recently 
published a rollicking song, which did not 
have to wait to become popular. It I* "Roll 
Along," the great skating song. The com- 
posers of "Roll Along" are Harry B. Smith 
and Max Hoffman. Eleanor Kent will appear 
In a new act featuring the Wltmark songs: 
"Those Songs My Mother Used to Sing," 
"Invitations and "My Dear." Thelse's 
Harmonists, In the "Wine, Woman and Song" 
Co., at the Circle Theatre, are making good 
with "I'd Like, and I Would Die for You," 
'Smile On Me." "I Slug as I Sail with the 
Ilolllcklng Gale" and "My Dear." The 
Ileardsley Sisters are singing "Carlsslma," 
"Moon Dear" and "Won't xou Be My Sum- 
mer Girl." The Casino Comedy Four are 
using a specialty song which takes finely, 
"Where the Swallows Build Their Nest" In 
"The Tattoed Man," which Is having a New 
York run, the music Is distinctively en- 
dowed with the Victor Herbert spirit, 
which means that the subject Is thoroughly 
exemplified In tbe music. One of the most 
fetching songs of Iho production Is "Th« 
Benutlful Land of Dreams," while "Tbe Lily 
and the Rose," "Things We are Not Supposed 
to Know," "Watch the Professor," "The Kit- 
ten that Couldn't Be Good," "Sleep, Sublime 
and Perfect Poet," "There's Just One Olrl 
I'd Like to Marry" and "Galloping, Galloping 
Over the Desert, I Ride," are the numbers 
that have met with decided success. The firm 
of M. Wltmark & Sons are the publishers of 
"The Grand Mogul," and also of all of Fix- 
ley & Luder's productions. Pierce and Mal- 
ice are making good with the new version of 
"Smile On Me." The Bachelor Club Co. are 
meeting with continued success in "Star of 
My Life" and "Cupid Is the Captain of tbe 
Army." Helen Vincent Is making a specialty 
of "Love Me and the World Is Mine," and 
states that not in years has any song seemed 
to reach the hearts of the people Tike this 
Wltmark favorite. Anita Bonamour, Jennie 
Edwards and May Morgan are also specializ- 
ing this song. Felix and Barry, In "Smile 
On Me," which Is one of the ballad hits 
of the year, state their act continues to 
grow more popular with each succeeding day. 

New Songs from the Qua Edwards Pub. 
Co. — Conlln and Hastings scored one of the 
hits of the bill recently, at Pastor's, with 
Gua Edwards's famous Irish march song, 
"Karwell Klllarney ;'* and Lew Edwards' 
novel duet, "You Can't Give Your Heart to 
Somebody Else," which tbey claim are the 
best songs they have ever used. Nan Ryan, 
of the Ryan Sisters, with Weber & Rush's 
Parisian' Widows Co., are making a hit with 
"Farewell Klllarney." Max Witt's Colleens, 
who are touring the Poll circuit, report suc- 
cess with that king of all march Bongs, 
"Farewel Klllarney." They have the au- 
dience whistling the chorus In every town 
thoy play. Harry Ellis, of "The Quartette," 
wired that ho never had as big a hit as 
"Farewell Klllarney," In ail his career. The 
Quartette are obliged to encore the song 
half a dozen times. This song is deBtlned 
to become ths biggeat bit the House Melodi- 
ous has turned out.

A Tooth for a Tooth 

If there is one member of the 
human system that will pay you 
back in full measure for all the 
injury done it, it is the teeth. 
Neglect is not worse than experi- 
menting with unknown, untried and 
worthless Dentifrices. Either will 
hasten the day of your bitter regret. 
Sozodont is the friend of the teeth, 
and is an essential in millions of 
homes in all parts of the world. 
Stand by Sozodont, and your teeth 
will stand by you.

opened a three weeks' engagement on Tues- 
day. April 23. 

Male New Yorkers, although sometimes 
loth to confess It, have all been steeped In 
Wild West lore at some time during their - 
lives, and they all like a' taste of the thrill 
thai goes with the Buffalo Bill ' sample of 
life on the plains In pioneer days. Hence the 
big attendance that Invariably greets Col. 
Cody's aggregation whenever we can gee 
within calling distance of It. 

This year the thrills dispensed by the show 
are as many and as agreeable as ever, and 
some new features that have been added to 
the performance are responsible for even- 
more Interest than Is usually occasioned by 
the advent of the cowboys and Indians. 

There was not a mediocre feature on the 
long and varied programme, and what was 
especially pleasing to the big opening night 
audience was tho smoothness and despatch 
with which the different numbers were carried 
out, and the rapidity with which the large 
arena was cleared after every battle scene or 
exhibit, thus doing away with any delay. 

The biggest cards of the evening were the 
riding of the bucking horses, the shooting of 
clay balls by Col. Cody and Johnny Baker, 
and the new big fighting scene, entitled "The 
Battle of Summit Springs," which was warm- 
ly applauded on the opening night hy Gen. 
k. A. Carr, who commanded the Unlled Htates 
troops during that battle. In I860, and who 
watched with Interest its reproduction at the 
garden on Tuesday night, In company with 
Gen. Nelson A. Miles, another distinguished 

Annie Schaefer, a cowgirl, who' was Intro- 
duced by Col. Cody as a real wonder, lived 
up to tbe high praise her chief gave her, for 
she rode one of the wildest and most energetic 
bunkers In the whole collection of untamed 
horses, and got some of the heartiest applause 
of the evening for It 

In the scene showing "The Battle of Sum- 
mit Spring!!," an Indian village, erected in 
full view of the spectators, and peopled hv 
the redskins as they were la the days of 
savage uprisings una slaughter, proved niosi 
entertaining, and the entire exhibit, from the 
raising of the tents to tbe charge of the 
United States troops and the wiping out of 
the savages, wan cleverly arranged and of 
absorbing Interest. , 

Another feature that was thrilling antl 
well liked was the daring riding of a former 
pony evpress rider, who dismounted from a 
Hying pony and remounted another horse 
with lightning-ilk" rapidity. 

The show has undoubtedly taken the town 
by storm, and tbe big Garden should be ton 
small for the crowds that the exuihlllnu 
deserves to attract. 

The programme as given on the opening 
night, and which Is to be continued through- 
out the season, follows :

John Robi nson's S hows Open. 

Joint Rotilnson's Ten Shows— the climax of 
tbr"c iterations of circus men— opened the presentation or legitimate 
entert season of 1007 at the new Cincinnati both parties will doubtless 
u„"lc grounds, on Heading Boad. April 28. it Is also stated that tl 
IVsnlle a rain storm, the canvas city was 
ueonled with a magnlflcent multitude of 
ileasert people. After three days on this lot, 
the circus moved out to Cummlnsvllle for a 
two days' stand. Business was tremendous, 
nnri on several occasions enough people were 
1 iirned away to fill another tent. It was Cla- 
elnniiH's greatest tribute to the Queen Cltys^ 
"home grown" show founded by "Wide Johny 
Robinson," and now olBcered with QOfOTfsMr 
,lahn K. Boblnson as sole owner; John G. 
Ilohlnson, manager, and Oil Robinson, New 
York and foreign representative. 

l-!lghry-sevon years of circus experience are 
crowded Into the Robinson Show, nnd all the 
magic of the spangles and sawdust rings are 
10 be found beneath the great eanvnsed cano- 
pies. The parade on the morning before the 
opening was the largest and most pretentious 
ever nuirie by Boblnson's, and several of the 
untune features brought out applause from 
ihc onlookers. Under the great tent are three 
rings and two stages, while the troupe of 

who lifts heavy weights by rings fastened lo

minstrel Om part, and the tallest horse In 
the world, an equine ten feet high. 

In all the years of Robinson's triumphs' the 
Inaugural of IbOT, In the face of bad weather, 
was the most successful. 


Klnw A Erlanger and the. Shaliert. 

The long expected combination of Inter- 
ests between Klnw & Krlanger and the Shu- 
borts, which has so frequently been the sub- 
ject of newspaper conjecture and unfounded 
announcement, has at last come to pass, and, 
although the statement of the new company 
explicitly states that the deal Is to advance 
the Klnw & Krlanger vaudeville Interests 
alone, n more amicable arrangement In the 
presentation of legitimate productions by 
s result 

the Shuberts have 
by uo means lost their Identity, and tbat the 
rivalry between the separate combinations 
Is not at nn end. Rut It is the Impression, 
however, that the Shuberts may book over 
the Kmw & Erlnnger circuit of legitimate 
houses. If they so desire. 

The new merger was incorporated In New- 
Jersey on April 2T, as the United States 
Amusement Co. The deal was engineered 
liy George B. Cox, of Cincinnati, and Con- 
gressman Joseph Rhlnock. of Kentucky, both 
of whom have been associated with the Shu- 
In'i-t enterprises. 

The following officers were elected : A. I.. 
ftrlnngcr, president : !.<■<■ Sbiibert, vice-presi- 
dent ; Marc Klnw. treasurer ; James P. Mc- 
liovern, secretary: Levy Mover, of Chicago, 
general counsel ; William Klein, of New York, 
attorney ; Attorney General Robert II. Car- 
ter, of New Jersey, the New Jersey attorney. 
The executive committee elected consists of 
A. Ii. Erlnnger, Lee Shubert, and Marc Klnw. 
The board of directors Is composed of A. I..

both rivals for the same fair 
Parlslenne's hand. In a dnel

You all hare, at one time in your career, sung a HARRIS ballad, and never failed to make good. Now, what is the reason. It is just 
because you have sung a song by a composer who writes both his own words and music. His titles and stories are taken from real life, and 
his music is an inspiration, and not rehashed from some old time, long forgotten popular song, and foisted upon the public as original. That 
is one of the secrets of the HAR R IS ballads successes. 

Composers are born, not made. Song imitators may strike it once, perhaps twioe, but do they? or oan they strike it year in and year out 
for twenty years, as HARRIS has done and is doing year in and year out?

■ ST1GE FOLK and Sometimes OTHERS 


To continue tbe subject of naming popular 
musical compositions, both lyric and instru- 
mental, the fact may be repeated that nearly 
every one of tbem has an incident, eltbor 
humorous or aerloua, connected with tbe title. 
Herein are recorded a few anecdotes con- 
cerning some of "the popular bits of the day." 

Fells Kelst, of tbe alliterative cognomen, 
has a large slxed mental repository for these 
concerning the music of the Leo Feist brand, 
and particularly the titles belonging to his 
own compositions. 

The theme of "Tbe Bullfrog and the Coon," 
music by Jus. B. Nathan, and words by Felix 
Feist, one of tbelr greatest song successes, 
was conceived away up In the Maine woods 
where Feist and bis friends were resting 
from the arduous duties of producing and 
popularizing music. 

One night In the deepening twilight tbe 
two writers were strolling along tho path 
that bordered a pond, trying to forget busi- 
ness, and gathering ozone from the fresh air 
which should add to tbelr vitality for tbe 
next season's light for musical supremacy. 

"Chunk-chunk," croaked a young bullfrog, 
about a stone's throw away, as he sat In tbe 
usual squat bullfrog pose upon a slippery 
boulder, close to the water. Then, at the 
nearer approach of tbe two young men, be 
gave another "ca-cbunk," and, with a splash, 
disappeared Into his protective element. 

"Did you see that frog?" exclaimed Nathan. 

"Yes," quickly replied Feist, "and I saw a 
song In blm, too." Thereupon ensued a deep 
discussion between the two, which resulted In 
tbe evolution of "Tbe Bullfrog and the Coon." 


To digress moment from the Feist stories, 
one recalls another musical composition by 
Howard Whitney, who was Inspired by a 
puddle full of these batrachlans, the mourn- 
ful croaks of which are also referred to by 
no less a personage than Oliver Wendell 
Holmes, when he wrote of "the batraohlan 
hymns from the neighboring swamp." 

Howard Whitney wrote many characteristic 
pieces tbat were Immensely popular a while 
ago. Tbe "Frog Fuddle" headed this list, 
which Included such suggestive titles as "Mos- 
qultos' Faradc," "Donkey Laugh," "Lucky 
Duck," and others of peculiar and amusing 

Whitney related the Incident of a railroad 
wreck near Qrccnvlllo, 0., In which be took 
an unwilling and unexpected part. It oc- 
curred In a swampy district, whoro both 
sides of tho track sloped down into water 
that was literally full of tbeso croakers. 
Kumlnatlngly observing this fact while, await- 
ing release from the delay of the wreck, 
Whitney's musical senses wero Inspired by 
tho peculiar vocal sounds, splashes and gen- 
eral confusion that reigned In tho nearby 
swamp holes. Therefore, "Tho Frog Puddle." 


Some time ago, when the Feist brothers 
possessed not the commodious qunrtors they 
now occupy, and when each member of tho 
company had to "get In and dig," thus saving 
tho length of tho salary list, among other 
things, thoy had a march all ready for the 
engraver. Hut thoy could not decide upon u 
fitting title, bo Abe Holzmann's lively two- 
step was held back for that simple, though 
effective, reason. 

Those most concerned In tho Fclst houso 
were straightening up tho confusion of the 
place, after business hours, ono nlgbt. The 
senior member was hustling things at tho 
desk, Abo Iloltmann was sorting and piling 
up disarranged sheets of music In a Iclsuroly 
manner that did nut accord with Edgar 
miner's quick methods. Tbat young twin, 
slnco graduated to the front part of tho houso 
which he so well represents, was anxious to 
hurry tho process, so I hey could leavo for tho 
night. Holt In fun, halt In earnest, ho ex- 
claimed : 

"Come, there t Blaza away, now 1 Blaio 
away I" 

"There's our title for the march I" quickly 
exclaimed Ilolsinnnn, catching on. Anil 
"ltlaic Away" has slnco blazed a wide trail 
along the march line. 


"Anona," an Instrumental piece, by Mabel 
McKlnloy, was named by her publisher. It 
had no special meaning, but since Its pub- 
lication tho peculiar name has been promi- 
nently placed, evidently possessing an at- 
tractive power, felt by several applicants for 1 
tho ubo of It In a business way. 

Leo Fclst took an hour off ono afternoon 
and began figuring on a title for the popular 
singer's composition. Ho was fishing with 
bis pencil and paper for a namo that would 
spell tho same both forward and backward. 
The above named word was tho result. How- 
ever, tho clover publisher wns not aware that 
I his was tho namo of a Texas town, and so 
the coining of the attrnctlvo namo was really 
original with him. 

"Aninm" has since been bestowed upon a 
special brand uf cigar. It also llRures us the 
namo of a New York apartment louse, mid 
Is painted upon 11 fine yacht that cruises tho 
waters about tho big metropolis. A few days 
ago tho house of Feist received an applica- 
tion from a chemical company for the use 
of the namo for a newly Invented antiseptic. 
This Is only ono of a long list of applications, 
which prove that there's "something In a 
name," and that "Anona" by any other nnutc 
might not have been halt so successful. 

There Is a laughable Incident connected 
with the song, "There's Itoom for Us All on 
tho Trolley," successfully introduced by that 
clever duo, Melville and Stotson. 

They wero singing It as Proctor's Fifty- 
eighth Street Theatre. According to well 

known methods of the vaudeville singer In 
Inciting the sympathetic part of the audi- 
ence to Join in tbe chorus, they passed the 
usual invitation. Somehow, there was not 
the usual hearty response, and Miss Melville, 
In encouraging voice, addressed tbe gallery: 

"Come on, Join In," she exclaimed; "this 
Is a nice little family affair — let's all sing 

But her appeal did not gather many voices 
at that time. Then Bvie Stetson, the rotund 
comedienne, took a hand. 

"Come on, all Join In," she said In ber 
mirthful manner; "now, speak tbe song If 
you can't sing It," and then she began 
"There's Room for Us All on the Trolley," 
In the lead whlcb still was not followed. 
Then, stopping short, the plump, pretty 
singer said In a disappointed, serio-comic 
voice : 

"Haven't any of you anything to say ?" 

"Yes," came' a reply from the gallery tbat 
broke up tbe meeting, "there ain't no more 
on the trolley If they're all your size." 


"Could You Loam to Love a Little Girl 
Like Me?" Is a musical appeal tbat was most 
successfully put from the stage of Proctor's 
Newark Theatre, at a recent matinee, by 
Sue Hlnlth. 

She sang the chorus to a gentleman, ac- 
companied by a lady, In a box near tbe stage. 
He seemed very much embarrassed, and tried 
to slide his cbalr toward the back of the 
box. Ills companion was seen to lean toward 
hlpi with a smile, and Felix Feist, sitting 
close by, heard her say : 

"Don't let her feaze you — take the tun and 
don't mind 1" 

At this encouragement the man braced him- 
self for the next chorus, and when the appeal 
was again made by Miss - Smith, bis unex- 
pected, quite audible reply, was : 

"Yes, Indeed, I could!" and a big laugh 
surged around the auditorium. 

At this the lady, whoso advice had been 
literally taken, attracting more attention 
than she had anticipated, made a precipitous 
exit from the box, perhaps further Impelled 
to do so by some slight feeling of Jealousy 
at hearing Ibe warmth and heartiness In the 
reply of her escort. 


The Friars. 

The last meeting of the Friars, held April 
20, was largely attended. Henry Miller was 
elected en honorary member, anil the election 
fff the following new members was announced: 

Active — Edward Schsfer. Albert Dorrls, 
A. Levi, Joe K. Richards, Thus. Hodgeman, 
James Slevln, Wm. II. Walsh. Robert W. 
Priest, William Munster, Ocu. S. Wood aid 
Hamsay Morris. 

Associate — Kowland (1. Pray, Max Arm- 
strong, J. P. Muller, Ueorgo B. Hunt, Wm. It. 
Clayton and Harry Docl Parker. 

J. \v. Itumsey, treasurer of tbe Friars, re- 
ported that the organization was a huge finan- 
cial success. Remittances from members have 
been coming In steadily. 

The chrb has grown from a handful to a 
membership which Includes nearly every agent 
In the business. The club has reached tne 
position on the firing line where it Is con- 
stantly attacked by schemes and propositions 
fur the future. The strict policy of the Hoard 
of Governors Is to proceed with caution, snd 
no move Is considered until a careful survey 
Is made of that chart upon which are marked 
the rucks which have wrecked so many organ- 
izations. However, the Friars want to roach 
out and look ovor every posstblo opportunity 
for the enlargement of tlic scovc of the or- 
ganization and tho development of Its use- 
fulness for tho future. Acting on this desire, 
the Friar president has appointed a perman- 
ent ways and means committee, to whom all 
such natters will bo referred, anil upon which 
the committee will report. The committee 
comprises : Charles Emerson Cook, chairman ; 
ilcorgo W. Siitnmis, Harry 0. Summers, J. D. 
LcfDngwcll and W. K. Semple. 

All Friars doslrous of keys to the club 
rooms In tho Knickerbocker Theatre Build- 
ing; should apply to Friar Phil Mimlil, Room 
230, in the same building. Keys cost 2Sc. 

The president has appointed Friar Llpraan 
Keene acting secretary, during the absouco 
from New York of the secretary.

Uandetille and minstrel, 

Al. Q. Field Notm. — After one of tlie 
most prosperous and longest seasons of the 
twenty-two years the Al. O. Field Greater 
Minstrels hove been touring the country, 
the company cloBCd Its season Monday night, 
April 22. at Delaware, 0. The 1007 tour was 
the longest and most prosperous on record, 
extending over twenty-four States and ter- 
ritories, as well as the Dominion of Canada. 
Of the fifty-five persons who opened the sea- 
son, all returned -with the company except 
Herbert Wlllluon and Albert Tint. The 
longest railroad Jump was from Denver to 
Oinrba. 690 miles, and the shortest was from 
Hock island to Davenport. The company 
never missed a performance In the forty-four 
weeks it wag booked to play. There were no 
railroad accidents, or other mishaps, to mar 
the season's pleasures. The company trav- 
eled 18,917 miles, giving 410 performances, 
of which 120 were matinees. 8o popular has 
this company become over the route It travels 
each season, that matinees have been nu- 
merous; the regular bookings Include two 
matinees each week— Wednesday and Satur- 
dny — but In many Instances the entire house 
was sold out In a few hours after the sale 
opened, and Monday matinees, which are not 
uncommon In the one nlgbt Btands, with the 
VMM Show, were given. In one week on the 
Pennsylvania circuit, comprising Johnstown, 
Harrlsburg, Altoooa, Heading. Allentown and 
Kaston, live matinees were given. In Denver, 
Col., the company made one of tho most 
unique parades on record — an automobile com- 
pany had secured n consignment of auto cars, 
eight 1b number, the ernct number of letters 
In Mr. Field's name. A large lettered sign, 
spelling the name of the minstrel manager, 
was prepared; two large Bight seeing cars 
carried the bands, snd the novel parade wjb 
pictured by all of the Denver papers. The 
hunting club, composed of members of the 
company, had a most enjoyable season. 
The hunting outfit carried by Mr. Field 
Is not only his pride, but the talk of the 
shooters wnerever the genial minstrel goes. 
Mr. Field la a member of a number of gun 
clubs throughout the country, and he Is 
an enthusiastic field sport. His dogs are his 
constant companions. George Blelsteln. of 
The Courier Co.. lately presented Mr. Field 
with a valuable pointer from his famous ken- 
nels. Belle and Sultan, the faithful equine 
friends that have accompanied Mr. Field the 
past ten years, and have traveled further than 
any pair of horses In tbls country, will get a 
long vacation this Summer. They will roam 
at will on the farm for three months. Next 
season they take a prominent part In tbe play, 
and their names wilt be on the programmes 
In large letters. In the scenic spectacle, "The 
Little Boy In Green," Mr. Field has a sur- 
prise In store for his Columbus neighbors. 
When the curtain goes up on this spectacle 
a correct scenic setting of the Driving I'ark, 
In Columbus, with the grand stand filled with 
beauty and fashion, will meet their gaze. 
Many records have been broken on this fa- 
mous Columbus track, and It was chosen as 
tbe scene most approprlte for the spectacle, 
"The Little Boy fn Green." Mr. Field has a 
large show on the stocks for next season, and 
It requires his personal attention, as every 
feature Is original, and there ore several big 
spectacles that will require weeks of work to 
complete, notwithstanding they have been In 
course of preparation since tbe first If tbe 

Maiitiu Arbkro and Mai Waonib report 
success In their singing and acrobatic dancing 
act. Tbey nrc on the New England circuit. 

Char.. K. Reded, of Reded and Hadley, was 
Initiated In tbe B. P. 0. Elks, Orange Lodge, 
No. 135, on April 2. Miss Hadley recently

New York Minstrels. — We closed a forty 
weeks' reason at Plnevllle, Ky„ April 20, and 
It was one o* the most successful seasons on 
record, playing to capacity at every perform- 
ance, with tho 8. II. O. out long before the 
concert took place In front of theatre. With 
only one or two changes, the company closed 
with all who Joined when our season opened, 
Sept. 8. 1000, at Jersey City. Executive 
staff ; Builow ft Wilson, managers and pro- 
prietors ; Lawrence Barlow, manager ; Chas. 
V. Hoffman, business manager. We used

Wilmington, Del., and will be the finest ever 
put on rail. With new uniforms, first part 
settings, etc., are also under way, watch for 
this big effraction for season of 1007-08, and 
compnvo It against others. 

Notes hiom tub Novct.Tr Theatre, Still- 
water, Minn. — That the seating capacity of 
the Novelty Is very much too small, Is clearly 
demonstrated every day, as Manager Obrecht 
tins to close the doors every evening before 
the performance, to keep back the large 
crowds. For the week of April 15, Mannger 
Obrecht nut the "Statue Turning to Life" 
on, and It wns such a good drawing .card, 
that the people demanded It another week. 
Chas. Scobcy, tbe Irish comedian and nionol- 
oglst, week of April 22, kept tho audiences 
in a continuous roar of laughter. Tbe Obrecht

The opening of "sirs. Wlggs of the Cab-

m-liljtht, the failure of some members of the 
company to nrrlvo In time for the original 
date being the cause of the shift. I believe. 

invert* of statistics will be Interested? to 
learn, tiint. according to the official report of 
Hikings ot. , the Paris theatres In 1000, the 
figures were larger than those Of previous 
vears, (exhibition years alone excepted). The 
lirand Opera, for Instance, took £147,0^4 ;

coralqtio, tl07,r.84, and the (Moon, CJnMillO. 
of the non-aobvontloned theatres the Chatc-

A large CniWd assembled In the Mart, To- 
kenlioiise Yard, Thursday afternoon, when 
Hie London Coliseum was offered for sale. 
Iliil not it word was spoken except by the 
auctioneer — there Was not a single hid. For 
tan minutes or more the auctioneer discoursed 
on the iiingrJlleeiicc of the building and Its 
enormous •povalhllltles. "From lost to first. 
I am Informed," he sulci, "this magnificent 
property hn> cost £300.000." The acquisi- 
tion of the site alone Involved between 
£100.000 and £150,000. and the revolving 
slags, propelled by sixteen electric motors. 
Itself c»it .130,000. As to the seating ac- 
coinntidiitlon. It was his opinion that It 
would lake S.oOO persons easily. Here was 
nn np.i.irt unity, the auctioneer went on to 
say. If It whs not to be a music hall, for 
iiinniwrs from Germany and France who 
wanted a piece In which to produce operas 
In this country. The house was to be sold, 
he added, by order of the High Court, as a 
going concern, nnd In twenty-four hours It 
could be opened to the public, for It was 
swept and garnished, and everything was In 
readiness for" Immediate business.' Owing to 
Hie conditions of the Illglt Court, the auc- 
tioneer hud no power himself to bid, nnd 
even the rccrvc figure was under seal In 
his pocket. Hut Inasmuch as report fore- 
sluidiiivd ..the willingness of a syndicate in 
.lifer £2110.000.. be suggested a start of 
£150.000, Just halt the sum that they knew 
the, 'Coliseum had cost. There being Ho re- 
sponse, "mity I ask £100.000?" he asked. 
Still the slli nee of, the packed room re- 
mained nnmvken. Afterwards £80,000, and 
llnnlly .CiO.noi) were suggested from the auc- 
tioneer s stand, but there was no bid, and 
I he nuellnni-ei' withdrew the property with 
the remark tnat. any proposition w(th regard

I'b ii and Nettle Peters did not return to

They have done exceptionally well at every

Josephine Sabel has achieved a notable

was nothing niore than aite deserved. Johan- 
nesburg audiences arc highly critical and 
not Infrequently hard to plci:ne,'and the man- 
ner hi which they 'receive o turn may he re- 
garded us nil earnest of the Intrinsic merit, 
especially of a variety performance. Miss 
Salad had 'no Ooiihr lieen informed of this,

io feel highly gratified nt the tremendous 
ovation which came from every part of the on the of her pci-fnri'iinncc

furniture, it will be to your interest to secure samples and prices on - 

Leather from your dealer or upholsterer. This material is, beyond question, better than 
real leather, is more durable, odorless, does not craclc, more easily cleaned, is fire and 
waterproof and costs about one third as much. It is so like real leather in appearance 
that it is almost impossible to tell the difference. We invite those interested to call at 
our larjfe show rooms, 16 West 34th Street, N. V., where an extensive display of made- 
up leather furniture and screens will be found.

three scenes This ploy 1 was far-Fetched 
ami n Irllle too creepy to suit tho 
audience, and although the acting proved 
Interesting, the work itself was pronounced 
unworthy Us association with the two clever 
Hltle aketclies that; prccoiled It. The stbrv 
(X. tells In of the III luck that a certain 
monkeys puw brings I o llie White -family. 
Major Morris tells Hie family the story; of *n 
isnrtahi monkey's paw which He possesses,

that the owner of It may have three wishes, 
lint thai, he will desire tlmt-lui had never 
neeu the monkeys paw after these wishes 
are granted. Mr. White gets the paw. wishes 
that. ho., had Silt) ppunds lo pay off the mort* 
gage on the home, and gets the money, lo- 
crtlir-r with the news that his only son has 
been killed at, the electric works. Mr: White 
then decides to have nothing more lo do with 
the paw. but his wife reminds lilm that he 
has two more wishes, and he wishes his son 
back to life. As he makes Ids wish, a loud 
Knock- Is Heard at the door, and Mrs, While 
rushes lo It, hut It will not opcti. -Suddenly 
Mr. While, recnlllng that his hoy has booil 
so terribly mangled, Belies the monkey's paw 
and ■ wishes lilm dead again and at pence, 
.lust iis the door Is flung open bv bis wife. 
mid K Is discovered that the mysterious one 
WOO ..mocked lias disappeared. Mr. Daly 
played the elderly Mr. While with convic- 
tion, and Adela Idr- Kltzallni showed the keen 
grief of the mother with great force. Vomer

a retired pugilist, lo help out the love affairs

Spider, who has dragged Monty out of an

that Monty Is badly Injured, and has rescued 
many people in the disaster. Hortense. how- 
ever, soon discovers the deception, and makes 
it clear that she really loves Monty, and 
doesn't care lor the "hero" business anymore. 
There Is plenty of action and much. tun 'In
